In this somewhat controversial and totally fascinating interview
with JOHN MICHAEL GREER we explore apocalyptic thinking throughout
history, a topic he covers with great wit and erudition in his latest
book, APOCALYPSE NOT: Everything You
Know About 2012, Nostradamus and the Rapture is Wrong.
He is the author of twenty-four books in the fields of alternative
spirituality and future studies, including The New Encyclopedia of the
Occult, The Long Descent: A User’s Guide to the End of the Industrial
Age, and Secrets of the Lost Symbol, which has been translated into
eight languages. He is also the author of a popular weekly blog on the
future, The Archdruid Report. Born and raised in Washington
State, John Michael and his wife Sara live in Cumberland, Maryland, an
old red brick mill town in the Appalachians.
